Yey for the update. Thanks.  I've watch the works of the director and the writer. Thumbs up!


 I'm looking forward to this one but this says  'comedy'  in the genre. The writer and director's previous dramas far from comedy.


I wonder who's going to play the character below. Hmm. Who do I think is best suited for this character.  Maybe one of those Kim's or or Go Min Si or Park Si Eun


"() is a college student with a hip and colorful personality, but a dark soul. Her colorfulness hides the fact that she’s responsible for a series of murders."


 I'll keep my eye on this.

I don`t know how a drama about a serial killer could be a comedy. I guess, it is a black comedy. Let see how this version can make a good black comedy. I have not seen the British series.


I am also curious who will play the colleage student serial killer. From the picture above I thought Kwak Sun Young is the one playing her. But she is 38 and can`t play a colleage student. :w00t: I just realised that I saw her on Hospital Playlist last year.

Recently, female epic dramas are looking for the main room in order. I thought there was only jealousy, jealousy, and fights, but now it is making viewers cry and laugh with a more diverse narrative.




JTBC's 'Melodramatic Constitution', which colored the summer of 2019 with sympathy, contains the stories of friends of the same age living in the same house. Im Jin-ju (Chun Woo-hee), Hwang Han-ju (Han Ji-eun), and Lee Eun-jung (Jeon Yeo-bin) heal their wounds and move forward for a better life, drawing deep sympathy for viewers, and among some viewers, it is considered as a 'drama of life'. She also opened a new chapter in 'women's epic drama'.


In the meantime, 'Women's Narrative' has mainly featured stories of women looking at each other as enemies, such as fights and jealousy, but since then, they have been able to increase empathy by containing stories about friendship and loyalty.


tvN's 'Mine', which recently ended, also received applause for its development that outweighed the viewers who judged only on the outside. It was a work that I thought would be just such an affair, but Seo Hee-soo (Lee Bo-young) and Jeong Seo-hyeon (Kim Seo-hyung) worked together to break through the common prejudice between East and West, and Kang Ja-kyung (Ok Ja-yeon), who was supposed to be a villain, also joined the women's journey.


Lee Young-ae is going to show her different comics through JTBC's 'Goo Kyung-i', which is her drama comeback after 4 years. It is a comic detective drama about a police officer who is an insurance investigator, who is all about games and alcohol, investigating a mysterious serial murder case that is completely disguised as an accident.


In a situation where the women's drama that escaped the 'obvious relationship' is receiving favorable reviews from viewers, more diverse narratives are expected to fill the CRT. From Son Ye-jin to Lee Young-ae, Moon So-ri, Kim Hee-ae, and the rookie Ahn Eun-jin, expectations are focused on the stories the actresses will fill.

Ko Kyung-i' Lee Young-ae's radical transformation "I'm not crazy"




The first teaser video of ‘Kyung-i’ has been unveiled.

The 15-second short teaser video contains an impactful transformation of Lee Young-ae that has never been seen before. Young-ae Lee, a ‘woman like oxygen’ that we know, has a 180-degree different look that can’t be imagined at all.


The video begins with a back view of a woman fighting a game in a dark and messy room. The woman clicks her light with the force of being sucked into the screen and says, “Kill them all. She kills them all,” she says. Then she reveals the woman's face, giving her a surprising twist. It's Lee Young-ae, 'Goo-gyeong-i' with her slouched shoulders and messy hair.


Lee Young-ae pops out of her garbage heap, heralding a transformation into a unique visual with only her face sticking out while her blanket is on her street. At the same time, the phrase “I am not a crazy person” is compared to the appearance of Lee Young-ae, who never looked ordinary in the video, and it infinitely amplifies her curiosity about what kind of person ‘Goo-kyung’ is.


When doubts about the unidentified 'Gu-gyeong-i' grow to the maximum, the title of 'A detective who was not in the world, Gu-kyung' strongly decorates the end with Lee Young-ae's voice saying, "Are you suspicious?"


The teaser video that raised her curiosity about Lee Young-ae's role, 'Gu Kyung-i', heralded Lee Young-ae's shocking transformation and her crazy passionate performance, and perfectly captured the attention of prospective viewers. From the very beginning of her life, the unusual character, Goo Gui, will make the next teaser video more awaited as to what kind of character she will be and what kind of story she will tell.
